View Full Version : I've reached my goal of mid-thigh length!

I've finally reached my goal length of mid-thigh! About 6 years ago I decided to start growing my hair out from shoulder length. I set a tentative goal of classic but I never thought I would actually reach that milestone. A while after that I came across a picture of someone with mid-thigh length hair and I think my jaw hit the floor! I started to think I'd like to try to get to that length myself if I ever managed to make it to classic. Thanks to all the tips and advice I've learned here I've finally surpassed my first goal of classic and made it to mid-thigh! Now for the pictures! I'm sorry if they're huge. I'm uploading them on my phone, so it's hard to tell what size they're going to be!

This is my length as of yesterday:

Paranda waves, just because I love them!

This is how I've been wearing my hair for the most part since I reached tailbone length. I've never really liked buns on myself but they really do help prevent damage!

What is "no taper?" like it's one length? Not a v cut? Maybe someone could post a taper mid thigh hair pic? Sorry to have a mini hijack in this thread... but I'm very curious what y'all are praising LOL Her hair is like a door mirror! I keep coming back to the pics to look and smile haha

Remi

Congratulations, Saige. Your pics are jaw dropping! I wonder...do you microtrim along the way?

Thanks so much everyone! I really appreciate all of your lovely comments! :blossom:

Remi, yes, I have always been a microtrimmer! My hair can look a little ragged at the ends if I go too long without a trim.

Nymphe, I'm really enjoying this length so I'll definitely be maintaining at mid-thigh :D

MidnightMoon, I'm 5'7", so not extremely tall but I do have a long torso (unfortunately!).

I've seen a video where a lady sort of tied her hair in the bun so the length itself held it up! It looks similar to hers so I wonder if nothing is holding it up?! :agape:

Saige

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely comments! The bun is actually a nautilus bun held with amish pins! I personally find them great for distributing the weight of the bun. I'm also a bit of a minimalist when it comes to hair toys, so I like to keep it simple!

Thanks nikki_s! I'm planning on maintaining at this length but I can't rule out growing to knee sometime in the future. I'll have to wait and see!

Congratulations on reaching your goal! Your hair is gorgeous!!! That is the same goal I am trying to reach as well! I'm figuring through genetics that my hair can grow to mid-thigh length. We'll see. It has never been that long before. The longest it has ever been was Mid-Back Length. Which was almost Waist Length. But I'm feeling that it can grow a lot longer than that with proper hair care.

Oh my, I am glad I was browsing through the new posts and found your thread because I have always admired your hair, it is just perfect hair, absolutely amazing! By the way that bun on your profile picture sparked my curiosity, is it a fishtail braid bunned? Anyway, congratulations, you have a treasure there.

Saige
July 17th, 2017, 12:08 AM
Thanks so much rachdun, AlKhazzaR and Ligeia Noire! :flowers: :blossom: That's right Ligeia Noire, the bun is a herringbone braid in a cinnabun. Mimha named it the Ammonite bun :D

:thudpile: Your hair is STUNNING! Gha, you could probably go all the way to floor and beyond with that hemline *not envious at all ;)* Also proof that hair stats aren't everything - we have very similar hairtypes on paper but yours is just so gorgeous. If mine looks even half as good in a few years' time (come on thickness, travel down!) I'd be ecstatic.

Oh, and congratulations on reaching your goal! <-- Ha, was too blown away by your hair's beauty to remember to say that to start with :lol:

Hehe, thank you - that colour is brought to you by sun damage and a strong flash :o My hair is rather more sandy IRL.

Such a random thread to revive, lol.

But wow, Saige actually looks like my hair texture/color twin! Definitely makes me want to increase my goal length - I can only hope my hair looks as healthy at that length. The pictures don't show up for me either, but I checked out the beautiful shots in your album. :crush:
